The story of broken families and abandoned children among the outcasts of the drug scene and the alcoholics of Copenhagen. Two brothers, sons of an alcoholic mother, struggle in extreme circumstances, also with their own self-destructive urges. Nick has been released from prison and covers his unhinged friend Ivan who has killed Nick's girlfriend. Nick's nameless brother becomes a heroin dealer to help support his little son Martin. A dead, gray digital intermediate look. Another depressive counter-image to Happy Denmark created by the country's top film-making talent? Much rather the real secret of happy Denmark is the special care taken of those who are cast out of the happy circle.
